Well-prepared for the Campus Fair

The following tips serve as a guide to help you prepare for your visit.

Before the event

  • Use the digital exhibitor directory in the “HHU Eventsapp to prepare for your visit – it contains everything you need to know about the exhibiting companies, speakers and programme.
  • Decide in advance which exhibiting companies you want to speak to. Use "Categories" to search in the mobile app.
  • Contact the HR managers, e.g. via the in-app chat function or e-mail and agree an appointment for an interview on the day of the event.
  • Find out about the company and prepare questions about what they offer. Plan what to say in the interview.
  • Formulate a brief curriculum vitae listing your key competencies and qualifications.
  • Use the “HHU Events” app to create a personal plan for the event with your own agenda and favourite contacts.

At the event

  • You can find more than 200 vacancies at the exhibiting companies on the digital jobwall in the Campus Fair app and on the central jobwall in the entrance foyer of building 23.01. If you have any questions, you can ask the companies directly at their booths.
